AoB Disclosure Policy

The purpose of Art of Boardgaming is to showcase and generate interest in eurogaming as a hobby. By sharing reviews, gaming tips and tricks, advice, and my thoughts and opinions, I hope to encourage you to try out a game or two for yourself and find out just how much fun they can be!

Blogging about these gaming is so much fun, and I enjoy interacting with you and exchanging ideas.However, as a blogger, there are also many opportunities for me to get paid for what I do.

Running a blog does have it’s expenses – hosting, graphic licenses, time, not to mention talking about games that often can cost more than $50. So if I can offset those costs even a little bit to provide you with more quality and exciting content, I’m going to do it. But it will always be with my own integrity in mind. I won’t ever lie about a product or service that I share with my readers. That’s just not how I work.

Please read through the following accepted forms of compensation, so you are aware of these practices on Art of Boardgaming.

Affiliate links

I am an affiliate for many of the products that I recommend. That means when you click on the link on my site and purchase whatever product or service being offered I will receive a percentage of that purchase, at no extra cost to you. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, please feel free to go straight to the source.

Art of Boardgaming is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

In full disclosure, I have indicated in all of my posts whether or not they have affiliate links. At the beginning of each post,  you will see this statement, which means any links from there on out could be of an affiliate nature.

Sponsored posts

From time to time I may receive free products in exchange for my open and honest review. While I will often use an affiliate link when mentioning these products, I will never recommend that you purchase a product just because I get a kick back. If I’m not convinced of it’s value, I will be clear in my review.

Companies may also offer me monetary compensation to write about them in a post, or to share my experience. Again, I will only accept these offers if I believe they legitimately benefit you.

I will begin these posts with the following statement or similar, so you know exactly which posts are sponsored.
